FAMILY CURSE, a moderne loud rock band from New York City, have just released their first album “Twilight Language”, and Dynamite Hemorrhage thinks it’s pretty good.
These guys would’ve been right in the wheelhouse of the Touch&Go/Amphetamine Reptile stable around 1989-91, and I’m going to go out on a big limb and say that they’ve probably got some records in their group collection from The Fall, Cop Shoot Cop, Tar, Rat At Rat R, Surgery and Pussy Galore. See what you think by listening to “No Return”, which kicks off the album.
Anyone remember RAT AT RAT R? Totally great and mostly unheralded NYC post-no wave group with one very good album on Neutral Records from 1985, commonly known as “Rock & Roll Is Dead, Long Live Rat At Rat R”. (There was another release as well, and I’ve never heard it).
This photo’s from around the time of that album. From the looks of it, they were totally walking the walk. Big Rock Joke Doll!
